Giant yellow territorial delineation in three… two… one…

Brrrrrr hah herrr herr herrr

Forecast says more of this for the next seven days, and it’s not even officially winter yet. We may have to get in the car and drive south again in the next couple of months, and by south I mean AUSTRALIA.

14 weeks

I am as large at 14 weeks this pregnancy as I was at five months with Leta. It probably doesn’t help that we took this shot not twenty minutes after I had eaten an entire plate of classic nachos at Chili’s. I’ve been craving beans and cheese, and conveniently Leta has wanted to have nachos [...]

Lovely pig leather key fob

I found this hand-cut and hand-stitched fob at the LeatherPrince Etsy shop and had a hard time deciding on the pig or an elephant or a frog or a hedgehog. There was just something about the pig, though, and even though this makes it impossible to shove my keys into my pocket, it also makes [...]

Jon broke the snowblower Saturday afternoon by pushing it over the newspaper, so he wasn’t able to get out and take care of the mess until later today. Thank God we weren’t issued a citation for late snow removal like [...]

Gift Guide 2008

I’ve recently received several frantic emails from guys who are either married or are dating readers of this website asking if I might put together a holiday gift guide.
